    In chapter 48 the two do dream of each other.
    Trash dreams of being turned into a weasel. Mother Abagail wakes 'with a terrible chill and a feeling that was both fear and pity; pity for whom or for what she did not know'
    Laws, yes! This reader has done had the scales dropped from her eyes! Sai King did endow Mother A with some pity! It was this reader who missed it:apologetic: Thank you for challenging me to look into it. That is what I look to this board for!

    I've misremembered things on this board several times. Things of which I was certain turned out to be wrong or different. Thank you for the update, I enjoy seeing the quotes you provided, too. That is what makes this place so fun. Keeping our ducks in a row, right? :)

    well i forgot those two in particular shared a dream connection, so there you go lol. sometimes reading a book over can remind us of just how much we forgot (except for It, i've read that thing like 20 times and i think i've about got it memorized by now)

    No, she always annoyed me. Self righteous, and really prejudice. Calling Catholics mackerel snappers seriously bothered me. However, I feel she was written exactly as she was and that makes her well written.

    I enjoyed the time she put her teeth in and made faces in the mirror. Practicing, I guess. I'd confess to doing things like that, but probably won't. That is all. Over and out.

    reminds me of needful things. although the down right gleeful way he had the catholics and baptists going at each other was almost amusing in it's intensity

    I agree with you although my reasons may be different. As an atheist, I'm always a little irked by the overly religious characters. Why does God need Stu and company to go to Las Vegas? If he wants to stop Flagg he should just do it but Mother Abigail thinks it's perfectly ok for him to send them to be needlessly slaughtered
